The Limuru Country Club team of Kangethe Ndiho and John Ngugi are the winners of the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival Grand Finale held at the Muthaiga Golf Club over the weekend. The pair, playing off handicaps of 17 and 28 respectively, combined brilliantly in the four-ball better-ball format, to post a score of 45 points to claim victory over 150 other finalists.

The pair started their final round conservatively, scoring 20 points on the treacherous opening nine holes at Muthaiga. On the closing nine holes, the pair came alive and took advantage of the cool weather to post a huge 25 points for a total of 45 points.

With this victory, the pair win now be VIP guests of Tusker Malt Lager in an all expenses paid golf trip to South Africa that will involve golf at some of the top golf clubs in Gauteng and professional golf lessons at the Vodacom World of Golf in Sandton. Congratulating the winners, the KBL Marketing Director Caroline Ndungu thanked all the golf clubs that had hosted the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival. “This season, the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival visited 15 golf clubs across Kenya, from Malindi to Kisumu and from Machakos to Nyeri.

The Carnival hosted over 2,900 amateur golfers from 35 golf clubs and on behalf of KBL and the sponsoring brand, Tusker Malt, I would like to thank them all for participating,” Ndungu said. “To the winners, congratulations and I trust that you ¬†will be great ambassadors for Tusker Malt and Kenya as you travel to South Africa for what is destined to be an experience of a life-time.”

Speaking on behalf of the winning pair, Kangethe thanked the sponsors for a well organized event. “The Tusker Malt team has continued to come up with new and interesting ways for competition and this has kept this championship fresh and popular,” Kangethe said. “We were had a few good breaks on the golf course today and we now look forward to the VIP golf trip that Tusker Malt has prepared for us.”
